Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or


I would say the resettable thermostat has failed. There is a thermostat which senses the water temperature, and when it fails, it causes the dishwasher to run constant.

Hi. I have a Briggs & Stratton 2800PSI gas pressure washer. I can get it to start, but after about 5 min, then it quits. I have cleaned the carb, change oil, changed plug, new gas, cleaned/checked air filter. Nothing will keep it running. Wondering if it may be not enough water pressure, but would that cause it to stop like that? When it runs, it does a good job, but it stops just as you get going. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!

I have a hotpoint built in automatic dishwasher model HDA3740G02SA. When my dishwasher runs all the cups on the top shelf seem to have dishwashing soap powder left in the bottom of the cups. I do not over fill the cup where you put the dish washer powder in. It seems like it isn't rinsing the glasses and cups on the top rack of the dishwasher properly. Do you know what the problem would be and how to correct it?

Dish washer does not drain after the cycle is complete. The last few months when the dishwasher is done their would be a small amount of water left in the bottom.

A few days ago the dish washer was running fine, maybe a single wash every day. Then, out of no were the logic seems to have left the machine.

My dish washer isn't cleaning the dishes well. There are little particals inside of every cup and on dishes after it is done. I just emptied and and now I'm running it with bleach. But before I started it I looked at the drain hose under the sink. The drain hose had water in it. The drain hose is going uphill from the dishwasher to the sink so I don't know if this is normal to have some water in the drain hose when the washer completes since it's not would have to pump uphill to get to the garba

Black residue My Amana dishwasher leaves a black residue on all dishes. The residue does not adhere to the dishes as much as detergent or food would, and is fairly easy to rinse off in the sink. It originally looks like coffee grounds at the bottom of a cup, but upon closer inspection it appears to be small particles of black rubber or plastic. When I put clean glasses in and just run them through the rinse cycle, the problem is the same. I have repeated this several times with clean glasses and

When I started it, it made a loud grinding sound which continued whenever it was actually washing/rinsing. It was washing and rinsing the dishes ok. Eventually I didn't hear anymore grinding but the dishes had not been washed or rinsed. The detergent cup was open and the detergent spilled down the door. I ran it again and could hear the pump running. It ran through the cycles but the water was not being circulated. I suspect that something is caught in the disposer blade or something and is bloc
